Auburn moms: Swedish Medical Center searches for cutest baby photos
Were you or your baby born at Swedish Medical Center? If so, dust off your photo albums and scan and send in your best baby shots – whether your photographs are from 1910, 1939, 1999 or 2009, Swedish wants to see them.
In honor of its 100th year of nonprofit service, Swedish wants to recognize some of its patients through a search for photos of babies born at any birthing center now part of Swedish Health Services, including Swedish Hospital (Swedish First Hill, Swedish Ballard and Swedish Cherry Hill), Doctors Hospital, Seattle General Hospital, Ballard General Hospital, Ballard Community Hospital and Providence Seattle Medical Center.
Since opening its doors in 1910, more than 200,000 babies have been born at Swedish Medical Center — in fact more babies are born at Swedish each year than at any other hospital in Washington. Last year alone, there were more than 7,400 babies born at Swedish’s First Hill and Ballard campuses.

Second place prize winners will receive a $500 Nordstrom gift card and third place winners will receive a $250 Amazon.com gift card.
Winners will be notified on or about June 21.
The photos must be of a baby (18 months of age or younger) at the time when the picture was originally taken (they can be any age now) and must be accompanied by: 1) the entrant’s first and last name; 2) the baby’s first name, if different from entrant; 3) the relationship to the baby; 4) the name of the Swedish Medical Center campus or hospital “birthplace”; and 5) birth month and date (excluding year). Entrants can also submit a 200 character story or information with the photo.
To protect any privacy concerns, baby photos will appear online with only the entrant’s first name, baby’s first name, birth month and date, birthplace and a short story.
Swedish partnered with digital agency, POP, to design and create the commemorative site.
